About Grumpy Old Man
Despite my title and image, I am not a grumpy old man… most of the time. It was a nickname bestowed by my granddaughter and wife as a joke a few years ago, and it stuck, like calling a big man tiny.
There are really three things I truely love in life ( besides my adoring wife) Food & Drink, Entertainment and travel.
Now that the kids are grown and gone, my wife and I have decided the time is right for us to explore the world and all the food, drink and entertainment it has to offer.
This blog is our attempt to document the journey though reviews and comments about the places we go, things we see the money we spend.
I hope that by me writing this, (and you reading it!), the next trip can be bigger, better and less expensive than the last one.
Couple of notes on how I view the world.
- I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, so when you go cheap, you get cheap and I tend to avoid that. I have a saying I picked up years ago: “When making a purchase Quality, Service and Price – you get to choose two of the three” and almost without exception, I select Quality and Service.
- I don’t mind television as a source of entertainment, but I usually avoid anything where you can get voted off the show.
